The iNTBition Journal goes to its
rei lcrs this issue slightly filtered In Its
general appearance. We hope that its
patrons will npprovo the changes in
form of make-up and tho effort that is
nwdo to mako it more metropolitan in
appearance, and more complete with
liye local news. The people of Stan
ford and iho surrounding country aro
tho best on earth, and there is no rea
son why they should not have the very
best paper that can be given them.
They can have, if they will help us, not
only with their subscriptions and adver
tising, but by each reader constituting
himself or herself b committee, of one
to tell tho editor all tho news he or sho
knows. Anything from a dog fight to
tho wedding of Sister Ann or he sale
of the pet calf can be woven Into a good
news item, and wo want you to tell us
of tho occurrences of tho day thatcome
within your knowledge.
Wo 'deeply appreciate the warm
hearted, whole-souled welcome which
tho good people of Stanford and com
munity have given us and ours, and
hope to mako the Interior Journal
such a good newspaper that it will con
tinue to be n welcome visitor to every
Almost 100 new names l)ave been
added to the paper's mailing list al
ready this week. No paper in this
part of the State, outside of Lexing
ton, compares in circulation with the
Interior Journal. Neither of the
two dailies at Frankfort has as many
bona tide subscribers. New subscrib
ers are new life blood to a newspaper
and the I. J. feels greatly blessed with
this happy augury for its future.
Governor Willson vetoed the cele
brared Louisville Ripper bill, designed
ta take the office of citty attorney from
the republican incumbent and give it to
a democrat. The republicans protested
from one end of the State to the other
over this "steal." They forgot that
ono of the first things tho republics n
State administration did when it carr.e
into power was to try to oust J. W.
Hedden, the democratic State Superin
tendent of Printing. It makes a b'g
difference whose ox is being gored. Tho
Ripper bill passed over the Governor's
veto in the'IIouses. but enough demo
c 'ats voted with the republicans in the
Senate to kill it. The republicans ate
thus robbed of much campaign thunder.
Of course everyone in Lincoln county
is proud that her son will continue to
so well represent the Eighth district in

is close upon us,
The establishment of a five-million-pound
tobacco prizing warehouse here,
which is now said to be assured, will
make Stanford rightfully the center of
the tobacco growing interests south of

coming! Col. Roosevelt has arrived in Khar

the faithful who have not permitted
themselves to bo led after the strange
gods which Taft, Ballinger& Co., have
aet up, are beginning to get ready to
hail the great deliverer.
Both Houses of the General Assem
bly passed over the Executive veto tho

Preaciiersville Reporter Says They
Arc Out of Date-Live News.
Wo aro ono of Lincoln county's most
humble citizens, yet we cannot refrain
from making one suggestion -that those
cranky Colonial stylo of letter "V's" on
tho front of of our new court-house bo
changed so as to look as modern as the
rest of this magnificent structure. Do
we have, n second? Every true citizen
cannot look at the new court-house,
now so near completion, but with n
feeling of admiration. From log cabin
to plendid mansion tnero Is none but
who should feel an interest, n part
ownership, as it were, in this terrple
whero sits the blind Goddess of Jus

Mrs. John B. Anderson has been very
sick. Mrs. Bettie Cummins is about
well. Mrs. J. H. Rlgsby, who has been
so very ill, is improving. All the peo
ple who have been afflicted with the
mumps are about well.

Mr. Levi Anderson, who lives in the
Canaan neighborhood, has a flint-lock
riflo used by his father, Wm. Anderson,
in the first quarter of tho last century.
It is in a good state of preservation
and is of fine workmanship. It bears
the date of 1777 end no doubt paw ser
Tice ogainst England. His father kill
ed 18 deer and many wild turkeys in
the knobs a few miles south of Crab
Orchard. A bent hickory cane has tl
date of 1855 and is a nice piece of carv

shows a wonderful polish. The crook
was handy to a man on horseback to
rescue his hat or to catch a runaway
Your correspondent, with Mr. Arthur
Sharp, spent a portion of last week
with Mr. and Mrs. T. W. Napier, at
Crab Orchard, and were most hospita
bly entertained while there. Mr. N. is
an affable gentleman and his wifo a
very pleasant lady. They have an in
teresting family. Wilson, their son, is
in the Crab Orchard post-office; Miss
Lena, their daughter, is an accomplish
ed young lady and a fine organist, while
their twin daughters are so much alike
it keeps ono guessing whether it is
Miss Kate or Miss Nan to whom he is
talking, and whenboth aro dressed
alike, it is only making matters worse;
then you havo to guess again. Even
their teachers and closest friends are
completely puzzled. This no doubt af
fords these demure young ladies lots of
fun. Then, the twin sons are as much
alike each other in feature, disposition
and taste as the girls. Their names
are Henry and Henley, the latter now
recovering from an accidental gun-shot
wound, which camo very near termina.
ting fatally. Joe, another son, is a
fine amateur comic singer and will some
day mako his mark. A more studious
youth we have novcr known. Tbe baby
girl, littlo Jeanette, and the eldest son,
McClure Napier, in business at Clea
ton, Ky., complete the family.
Do farmers cat the proper
sort of food?
The fanner of today buys a much
larger proportion of the food that goes
on the table than he did ten years ago.
It s a good thing that this is so because
lie his a great variety to select from.
He should, however, use great care
in selecting for the best results in
health ami strength.
The widespread tendency in the city
to Increase the amount of Quaker Oats
e.uen is due very Urgelv to the recent
U.inmMr.itlms by ncicntific men that
the 'jiuker Oats led man is the man
with i.'1-catett hysical endurance and
t nattst mental vigor.
Fanners should niie this subject
car. ful thought and should Increase
